Anonymous—why is it more important to be authentic than trendy? What possible difference could it make to something as unimportant as a recipe?
It looks like a great dish, however it got my hackles up a bit because I grew up in the Hawaiian Islands back in the day and I can assure you that the reason one may not find Hawaiian Chili's is because Hawaiians did NOT eat Chili's... it is not part of a Hawaiian diet!!! In the last perhaps 30+ years have they added that to dishes in Hawaii. Thai food was around but it was NOT the popular food it is today. Everyone is a custom to, nor do they like Chili's and everything!
Also the sauce he is making for his skewers is the same homemade teriyaki recipes I have from the 1960s! So there's nothing wrong with that it's just I was wondering why aren't you calling it Teriyaki sauce? because that's pretty much what it is.
I just believe it's more important to be authentic than to be trendy.
Delish! Served with coconut rice and everyone loved it! Taste those chiles first-I ended up only using one because it was so spicy.
